The Tree of Life Became a Forest

On November 6, 2015 Spark teamed up with the McClain Varsity Cheerleader Boosters for an evening of Wine & Canvas. A near capacity crowd appeared and enjoyed each other’s company while painting their version of Gustav Klimt’s classic Tree of Life. The tree of lifeproceeds were shared by both Spark and the Boosters and both groups want to express their appreciation for the support our area community continues to display.

Spark’s All-Day Sewing-Quilting Class with Jayne Honnold

Master quilter Jayne Honnold is returning to Spark this month with an all-day instructional class in sewing quilts. The date will be Saturday, October 31 from 9:00 am until sometime in the afternoon. Jayne will stay until the last student has completed their project.

The cost of the class is $40.00 per person and payment will be at the door by cash or personal check. So Jayne will know what to anticipate we would appreciate you fill out the following contact form and submit it to Spark.



Supply List for 50” Quilt Top

I’m glad you’ve signed up for a sewing/quilting class with me! Teaching and sharing this hobby is something I enjoy doing, and I hope this will be a positive experience for you.

Going into this, you should know some basics. You’ll be bringing your own working sewing machine and you should be able to operate it, including such basics as winding a bobbin, threading, and sewing a straight quarter-inch seam. I will provide extension cords. In addition, it would be wise to bring thread to match your fabric, sewing scissors and pins. I will be able to provide other tools for the project.

Supplies needed for this project:

  • 3 Charm Packs in coordinating colors (these are sold in quilt shops and online); a charm square is a 5” square of fabric; a charm pack consists of 42 squares of an entire fabric line. These cost $9-$10 in quilt shops and can be ordered for a bit less online.
  • 1/3 yard of a neutral (light) matching fabric for inner border
  • That’s all!! I have made one in baby (girl) fabrics and one in primitive-style fabrics. If a baby quilt is not your particular need, then consider using this quilt for an attractive table-cloth or for a lap throw or accent piece. A Christmas-themed quilt would be another option.

Since this is an all-day class, bring a sack lunch and whatever refreshments you want. We will be within walking distance of several restaurants, so that is another option.

Cost for the day-long class will be $40, payable on the day of the class. Reservations and registration will be handled through Spark! Creative Artspace.

Contact me with any further questions.

calligraphy 2The class will be taught by Spark artist Lindsey Buck, the artist and calligrapher behind The Hive Studio, where she creates custom artwork and offers a variety of calligraphy and travel-related prints and whimsies on her Etsy shop.

Lindsey recently returned to Ohio from Philadelphia, where she worked for Anthropologie, doing various calligraphy, illustration and design projects.

She is self-taught and has almost four years of experience with scribing in calligraphy. It is a beautiful art and has grown into a passion she can’t wait to share.

The workshop will focus on the basics – how to correctly hold the pen, the anatomy of a ‘nib’, dipping your pen into ink and developing your own calligraphy style by referring to the alphabet.

You will take home your kit so you can continue to practice on your own. The kit includes 1 pen nib; 1 nib holder; ink and ink well; tracing paper; grid paper; calligraphy paper and envelopes.

Workshop cost is $40 and will include a calligraphy kit. Food and beverages will be served! Enrollment is limited to twelve students on a first come first serve basis.
